                      GESTALT AS A THERAPY AND AS A WAY OF LIFE

Emerging from the background of a society addicted to economic growth and success is an interest again in the teachings of Gestalt founders Fritz and Laura Perls. People new to Gestalt are able to discover that this kind of life philosophy is possible. This seminar will focus on Gestalt's timeless understandings and existential practices as well as the therapy itself. Amazingly, some indigenous teachings as well as those of Buddhism and Eckhart Tolle's work have a lot in common with Gestalt principles. This way of life can have great therapeutic impact with clients.
